List one element of your “daily ritual” of creativity.
Sitting at my favorite cafe for two hours to write posts for my blog. Works like magic as I can’t get into the right headspace when I’m at home.

Share a quote that inspires you.
A non-writing writer is a monster courting insanity.
–Franz Kafka.

What’s your dream job?
Getting paid for taking photos of creative people whilst wearing uncomfortably beautiful shoes and being adored for every joke I make. Yes this is my dream job in all senses of this word.

If you were a pizza delivery man, how would you benefit from scissors?
I would use them to cut off the required portion of a dollar bill in case I don’t have any change.

How would you kill Tom Hanks?
I’d just turn the TV off, as he’s so incredibly normal that I doubt he’s a real person and not a perfectly designed hologram.

Fill in the blanks.
For my next trick, I will pull 17 kilos of camera gear out of my purse.

Recommend a local talent.
The band Stonefield. So talented, beautiful and powerful.

Is it true that you have a big collection of hens hidden in your garage?
Hey, I’ve got a cat to feed and he’s into organic stuff!

Share the link of a video that makes you laugh.

Add a question to this interview.
If you were from an alien from a different planet, what planet would it be and why?

Did you lie answering some of these questions?
I wish I did.
